– Variety reports that WWE Studios’ next action movie will be called Lockdown and will feature Dean Ambrose in a starring role. This is the second movie under the new six-pack WWE Studios and Lionsgate deal.
Production starts this month. The movie will be directed by Stephen Reynolds of Tomb Raider: Ascension.
Written by Nathan Brooks and Bobby Lee Darby of WWE’s See No Evil 2, Lockdown tells the story of “a police officer who finds himself trapped inside his own precinct and hunted after crooked cops stop at nothing to recover incriminating evidence of illegal activities against those closest to him.”
WWE Studios’ head Michael Luisi said of Lockdown:
“Lockdown will continue to energize and excite with the high level of adrenaline our fans have come to expect from our films.”
